Megaspanish v8.3 OSX doesn't run on my iMac. I am using OS X v10.6.8; 2.93 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor; 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 memory. I download from site, unzipped files, and double clicked on Mega Spanish.app file. The icon flashes and nothing happens. Any ideas? Thanks, James

Hi James, I am having the same issue with Megaspanish on my Macbook pro. Macbook Pro, OSX 10.7.5, 2.6 intel core i7, 16gb 16000 MHz DDR3. Have you managed to get this sorted? I'm sure it used to run fine on my old Leopard system. Cheers, Mark

Mark, No, I have had no success with getting program to work. I had the same issue in both Leopard and Snow Leopard. I have downloaded program several times with same result. My knowledge of making Mac programs run is limited. Good to know others are having issues with program. James

Hi James, Apparently Mega Spanish has been replaced by Master Games. http://members.rocketlanguages.com/your-community/spanish-feedback-and-comments/rocket-spanish-language-master-games. Good luck! Mark

I'm returning to studying Spanish after some time away. Still like the Rocket Spanish approach very much. I used to like using the Mega Spanish games for supplementary learning, but now it doesn't work on my MacBook Pro running Yosemite. Any upgrade or replacement?

I am not even familiar with it. I really have not played any games at all.

Once upon a time Rocket Spanish was something you downloaded or installed on your computer. It came with games and such. Now they have moved to online content and they stopped supporting the installed games. That is what I think has happened.

I have tried, but could never get very excited about the games here at Rocket Spanish. They seem pretty primitive, reminding me a lot of Pong. Who here remembers Pong? Anyway, there is so much else out there to use for games or flashcards that it is not an issue to me. For example, I use Quizlet to study and learn verbs. I think that learning a new language takes a strategy that includes learning from a structured program like RS, but also requires reading, writing, games, flashcards, etc. etc. etc. I doubt that RS or any other provider could design an all inclusive program that would work best for every learner.

I remember pong. I also remember Atari and Commodore. For learning Spanish though, I spent almost all my time which is about one hour or more a day with Rocket Spanish. It will probably take me at least three to four years to be proficient. All I know is that I started going to the Senior Center for the Beginner Spanish Class since July of 2014. The group of seniors are enjoying each other but not learning very much. We are struggling with pronouncing Buenos Dias, ¿Come estas?, very basic. I will keep going though because the group is really fun. It also fixes my head realizing that I am so much more advanced there at the senior center. Then I go back to RS forum and listen to Steven, Dan, Rich and Robert and realized how much more I have to learn to catch up with them.

I found the RS games interesting early on whenever I was too tired to do the lessons but still wanted to spend more time in Spanish. I think the intent of these is more to help keep your interest up by doing something completely different.
